Case Summary:

Armed with a Ph.D. in chemistry, a postdoctoral associate from China approached us to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his account. Once our skilled team assessed his credentials and validated the provided testimonies to be relevant and required for supporting his case. We found his notable contributions in the field of materials chemistry, proving his ability to continue with his initiated research work in the United States. Our priority was to signify our client’s accomplishments to the USCIS by attesting the following details:

  • Research Description: We determined our client’s research on materials for use in energy storage, environmental protection, and biomedicine and how it addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, meeting our evolving demands for more efficient energy use and storage, and also for protecting the environment from harmful pollutants.
  • Citation Count: We detailed the 1,127 times his work was cited by independent experts in the field of materials chemistry, located in 37 different countries spread across all six inhabited continents, representing that his work has been widely recognized.
  • Publication & Peer-Review Experience: Moreover, we stated the 25 peer-reviewed scientific articles–a prolific record juxtaposed to that of his peers in the mutual field of research. His work has been published in some of the most impacting journals in the field. We observed that our client conducted 15 reviews as well for highly acclaimed journals, corroborating his active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field.
  • Recommendation Letters: To strengthen his extraordinary ability in the field of materials chemistry, we added four recommendation letters obtained from other well-known experts, addressing our client’s background and accomplishments in the field. One of the independent advisors opinionated:

“From this substantial scientific background, there is no doubt that [client] possesses the expertise of a top-level researcher focusing on the improvement of ion batteries, and that his work must continue unimpeded for the further advancement of the U.S. technology industry.”

The USCIS adjudicated our client’s case, and in 4 months 18 days (Premium Processing upgraded), he was granted the EB-1A petition approval. We are glad that our client moved one step closer to the green card process. We thank him for choosing our law firm in representing his I-140 EB1A application.
